Take away the catches, the yards, the touchdowns, the records, the notoriety. Heck, take away his playing time, too. ...the Colorado wide receiver would do it if it meant more victories, less drama and more fun for teammates and coaches during his career. McKnight needs three receptions to become the Buffs' all-time leading pass catcher.

"I always had confidence when I played, but I didn't know (success) would come this fast or it would turn out this way," McKnight said Wednesday. "I knew I didn't have the physical attributes that would scream 'five-star recruit.' But I just felt that I worked as hard as I could I'd find a way."
